For a few months or even a few years you have a blog that does not end take off.
Your visits do not go up.
Your project is stuck.
You may gradually have gotten some visibility, but the interaction with your readers is zero .
There are hardly any comments.
No thank-you email in your inbox.
You want to position yourself as an expert on a particular topic but no one believes that you really have authority for this.
How are you going to get to live on your web like this?
Or, you can be at an even more initial point.
While you want to launch an online project and do not know where to start or what to write.
You think you’re no good at anything.
It takes thousands of hours to write an article then has little impact.
All of us who have online projects have gone through this point.
But today I’ll teach you how to get out of this vicious circle in record time and in a very simple way: Interviewing references in your niche.
Why not, tweet this?
There are weeks when you run out of ideas for your next post on your blog.
Or if you have them, you do not end up writing an article that you really feel satisfied with.
Interviewing is a very easy way to produce texts that are very valuable to your readers.
Not even what you have to do it, if not the bulk of the article is written by your interviewee.
Make a good battery of questions so your guest will leave the best of themselves on your blog and your readers will thank you.
You do not need ideas, you need to locate people.
This anyone can do.
Your biggest effort is this: find the person, contact him/her and do a good research for the battery of questions.
Done the interview and the edition is no more.
You probably save 5 to 7 hours for each post with which you intend to have similar results.
When these influencers, experts or whatever you want to call them share the interview through their networks will send you thousands of visits to your website.
You, hopefully, have a few hundred followers on social networks.
Your interviewee has hundreds of thousands between Facebook and Twitter.
What do you think will happen when you decide to broadcast the interview you’ve done?
Yes, you’re going to be freaked out with the increase in traffic to your platform that day.
The trick is to look for someone with this ability and also do a piece of interview like no one has ever done before.
By interviewing referrals in your niche, they autom atically transfer some of your authority to you and, over time, you become one of them.
This happens naturally, you do not have to do anything.
Just do more interviews better so that little by little the blogosphere will relate to each of these people.
In several conversations Facebook group I’ve seen that address me as “the guy who has managed to interview the most amazing bloggers around the world back then.”
Get this and your way will smooth out so much that it will even surprise you.
With each interview you make, you will receive free training.
You have a guy in front of you who will give you a 1 to 1 consultant for you.
Is it not amazing?
If you are able to find the most powerful people in your subject and have a conversation of 30 to 60 minutes with them, you will freak out of everything you are going to learn.
When you’ve done 20 interviews, you’re another person, guaranteed.
Some of these people that we have so idolized over time become friends of yours, going from being up in the sky to being at your level.
I have dined with a blogger, the girl who inspired me to travel around Undated back and build a blog for it.
This is the magic of interviews.
It is a dream come true, not imagine as being in front of the person you most admire in the world and have a conversation with her.
Conducting interviews is the best technique to get the idols out of the sky and give them a hug.
I do not know anything better for this.
You are going to present your audience with a lot of people with amazing stories and you are going to upload videos and/or free texts for everyone.
Your readers will leave comments on your blog, private emails and messages on social networks in the form of thanks for the motivational kick you just gave them.
Karma will thank you too.
Well, with this you will learn to relate much better with people, not only in the online world but in the real world, in the physical as well.
On the one hand that your readers will deposit you when you take 20 or 25 interviews.
On the other, the one you are going to develop yourself as you spend your time practicing in your conversations with your guests.
You’ll feel much safer in front of a camera, which will help your power of speech if you’re invited to a conference or if you are planning to organize an offline event.
You will develop the gift of improvisation and fluency in your conversations, which in the business world will serve you and for a lot.
Interviews are the best door to be accepted as a guest post.
The guest posting or guest blogging is basically writing as a guest author on another blog.
It is about locating other websites with a higher audience than you have (although not always) and a theme the same or similar to yours.
If you write for a blog that read 5,000 people a day, and you read 100 daily, the impact you create is much greater, logically.
I have made many face-to-face guest posting proposals right after recording a video interview, this is much warmer than if you do it by email, so the opportunities to be accepted as guest author are much higher.
I hope you have already realized the potential that you can get your website doing interviews.
Now, I’m going to present the tools and resources you can use to get the most out of these and make it simple to start without any headaches.
Easy to use and 100% free.
To start think is the best tool and by far because the learning curve is minimal.
It will only cost you to square the first interviews, the next you will get rounds.
The best thing for me, without a doubt, is that once you finish the recording it automatically uploads to your YouTube channel.
You save all the time of editing and upload to this platform.
For all my interviews back then I have used Hangouts but it is probable that soon I will do some tests to see if I am more comfortable with this software since the interviewee facilitates the process and everyone knows it.
As I’ve told you before, this is the tool I use to edit very quickly my video interviews that have been uploaded automatically when I have recorded from Hangouts.
Simple, fast and free.
What more do you want to start now?
Sofware for Windows and Mac.
Screen recorder and editor to correct your interviews.
I have used it a couple of times and the truth is that it is very useful and simple to start if you do not want to use the own Youtube editor.
You have 30 days free trial after the price is 99$ for Mac and 299$ for Windows.
For the recording of my interviews I use the web cam itself and the integrated microphone of my laptop.
As I’m traveling back Undated I move a dell for all sides.
The quality of the integrated hardware of this laptop is quite good so I do not need anything else that implies a greater weight in my backpack.
But if you want to take a more professional leap, then I’ll am ready to show you what I will be using to record my courses:
I leave you the data of my first 30 Interviews back in 2015:
I Suspend using Internet that time to focus on my education.
But the best thing has been to meet the people who were in front of the camera.
And have a great time in these interviews.
If you have lost the illusion with your project, I recommend you open a section of interviews to recover your mood.
You’re going to have a great time.
In this guide, I’ve teach you some awesome things about interviews and that worked for me too.

Am Mikahil Web designer and lovers of big surf, love to make new friends and also brought up something unique to make people benefit from it….
Page load time becoming more and more important ranking factor nowadays.
Sites that loads slowly typically don’t rank high as sites that loads fast.
It’s so beneficial to have fast loading website because it also improve user experience.
If you’re new to SEO then you don’t know about user experience but if you heard this word then you already know that On-Page SEO is all about on better user experience.
First impression is the last impression, we all know that but what is the first impression you should give to your visitors?
The answer is damn simple, “A better load time, a Professional design etc.” the first is a load time, remember that!
A research says that a website that take 1 extra second to load can lose their 7% of conversions – Kissmetrics.
If your site takes time to load then you’re losing lots of traffic.
If your competitor’s blog loads fast than yours then this is what making him a winner.
It’s also one of the Google Ranking Factor, it really affects your Search Engine Rankings.
If your site’s speed is slow then you’ll never get better SERP.
We all know that our generation need everything quickly like, if we go to any shop and if the shopkeeper is busy with other things or other customers then we just shout there to give us now.
Why not speeding up Page Load Time? That’s the reason I brought the whole guide on Speeding Up Page Load Time which contains every aspect of making your site load under 1 second and this guide is tested by me!
N.B: Recently, I was researching on making my site speed under 1 second and found these ways that I’m gonna mention below.
Not taking so much time in introduction. Let me start it because I know by reading introduction you now in hurry to make your website to load under 1 second.
Here I’ll be explaining ways to get your Page load time under 1 second for sure.
If you follow each and every step which I’m going to mention below then you’ll be getting more visitors and you’ll get better SERP.
Note: It’s a very tough job to make your website loads under 1 second, you have to make your hands dirty for this task. You have to bear your sleep-less nights for only making your page load time under 1 second. As I have experienced this, I’m now passionate about making any site load under 1 second. If you don’t want to make your hands dirty and want to enjoy a better load time of your website then contact me by using this link. Let me send you a resonable quote for your site. Don’t worry it won’t bite you!
I know you or I can’t fix my website’s load time issues by just using Inspect Element or Source Code.
Tools are necessary for checking page loading time and issues.
That’s the reason I brought some tools that always recommended by Professionals and I’m personally using them for my sites and client sites too.
Web Hosting plays a vital role in making your page’s load time fast.
Believe me or not, a better web hosting can alone make your website loads under 1 second.
Web Hosting is also known as “Backbone of a website”.
The problem is now what are the best web hosting you should choose?
I recommended you to use hosting that are good in support, good in loading and have their own CDN.
I recently asked one of famous SEO expert of Pakistan known as “Waqas Ahmed” that, Which CDN do you use? He said, a better web hosting can do all the things. We don’t need to care about CDN if we have a good hosting because a better hosting itself contains CDN.
Then I asked which hosting is best in your opinion? He told me about these two:
However, if you don’t have good budget for your site, you can also use Hostgator for web hosting, their plans are incredibly awesome and worth buying.
If you need to get a web hosting only in 0.1$ then use my referral link below:
Use one of the best web hosting if you want to speed up your website/page load time. Believe me, you’ll see changes just after changing the web hosting.
For me, CDN is just awesome and the best way for improving Page Load Time. CDN do tasks simpler and faster.
CDN basically is the thing that loads your site according to the Visitor’s Location means if someone request to visit your site from any country the person who is requested to see your site will download the server files from the nearest location of his place.
I love to use CDN in my own sites and client sites too. You should use it to make your site load under 1 second at any country.
The best free CDN is CloudFlare using CloudFlare on so many sites till now, and getting best results. However, there is paid version too of this CDN, if you have great traffic you should go with paid version.
You must be thinking what? Keeping the WordPress updated will help you in loading your site faster. I know!
But you know what? Content Management System A.K.A CMS play a vital role in making the page load time faster.
It’s not just updating the WordPress, it’s also about to install updates of your themes and plugins.
Keeping yourself up-to-date not only helps you to improve page load but it also helps you to get more secure.
Forget the old saying “old is gold“, the things are changing from time to time.
There are many themes with the support of customizing it from top to bottom, it’s really good for beginner who don’t know how to do that customization using style sheet file but this type of theme not called as Fast Loading Theme as these themes are full of codes.
In order to make your blog loads fast you have to use theme that is fast loading and smoothly designed.
I recommended you to use MyThemeShop themes.
They know how to make your blog load fast along with the awesome designs they have.
If you want to make your blog more and more fast, I recommended you to use MTS Schema Theme.
This is the theme I’m using on my many projects and using it on many of Client Sites too.
This theme will surely make your blog blazing fast.
Removing old files means old unused plugins and themes are most important.
Let’s take an example, In your home, you have 2 Fridges and the 1 is unused. You’ll surely gonna remove it from your house, why you add the thing which is just taking a lot of space in your home and you’re not using it.
Same with the blogs whenever we change the theme, WordPress not delete the old one, you have to delete it manually. If you’re having even one unused theme then remove it now, the theme is just taking space nothing else.
Same with the plugins, we mostly deactivate the plugins but not delete it properly.
It’s still stored on WordPress. Don’t forget to delete them.
Also don’t forget to delete plugins that you’re not using like WPCurve did and got really impressive improve in page load time.
If you’re also having any unwanted plugins and themes then remove them now. You’ll surely get good results as this is proven way to improve page load time.
Images are the problems for bloggers, as they have to add the proper and attractive image for getting well-crafted article.
But you never know that images can be dangerous if you don’t optimize/compress them properly.
I recommend you to use Pic Resize before uploading any image on your site compress them by editing them using it.
The recommended size of an Image is 100Kb.
If you don’t want to do it manually let the best plugin do it for you which is known as “WP Smushit“.
Currently I’m using it’s paid version in this site and it’s just awesome.
This plugin will compress your images without loosing the quality.
This is one of the trusted plugins by many of experts.

Whenever you check your Google Analytics most traffic getting pages, you’ll get homepage on the top.
No doubt, our homepage is one of the most traffic getting page among all.
Why not optimize it properly, you can optimize it by following ways:
These are the three effective tips that I want to give you for making your homepage load faster.
Don’t forget, homepage is the first impression you’re giving to your readers and first impression is the last!
There are so many plugins which can improve your load time to under second alone.
I have experienced this, I’m currently using WP Rocket for my blog and saw a huge difference before adding and after adding.
Below I’m attaching the screenshot of the both results (Before adding WP Rocket and After adding WP Rocket).
Basically, Caching plugins allows browser to save cache of the visitors so whenever a the same visitor come to your blog then the load time will mind-blowing for him!
But WP rocket have many features in it that can make your blog load under 1 second, as you can see the above screenshot’s result.
There are many Caching plugins for WordPress but these three are the best and used by many experts:
Here WPMU DEV wrote review of these three plugins. They explained it very deeply.
I believe that you’re doing hard work by giving useful resources to your readers and you need to make a living online too by using your blog.
But to be honest, Newbies are misusing the Advertising systems and making their blog a fish market just for some extra bucks.
But they are not right here, they just don’t know that they’re loosing their visitors for just some bucks.
Nowadays, if the user will not get better UX they’ll leave the site, not talking about UX here actually but you can also take it as UX because the better UX means the better Page load time.
The more you’ll add ADS, the more you’ll loose your visitors. Try to avoid this cheap techniques for just pennies, think about the future!
Whenever you edit the post, WordPress save that post without telling you even.
This can be a problem for you as they taking unwanted space and useless for you.
Why not remove them, useless things are always useless.
This is a bigger task you can’t do it manually, I was searching for this on “Google” and found that there is a plugin to do this task called “Better Delete Revisions“.
As I’m so careful about security and clean coded plugins I search for review on it and got WP Beginner’s review on it and found it useful.
Using it on my all projects and it’s doing what it is made for! Thumbs up for developers. (Y)
Gzip compression makes your site’s size smaller before requesting your site to the visitor.
It’s really a great technique nowadays people are using and well-aware of this.
Actually, it’s so awesome to enabling Gzip compression because it’ll load site pretty smaller than the original one.
I’m using it from start of my blog and getting good results by using it.
You can use this Gift of Speed’s tool to check whether it’s enabled or not, if not then here I’m going to explain that how you can enable it:
Old gone days when you need to dirty your hands by going to .htacess files and doing optimizations there.
Now plugins are taking good roles in changing our life more easier and quicker.
I was searching for the Gzip Compression Plugin many times before and found this “Check and Enable GZIP compression“.
This plugin is just made for this purpose but now I’m using WP Rocket then WP Rocket have this built in feature! 🙂
I must say that WP Rocket is one of the best plugins as I’m using that it makes my life so much easier alone!
Nevertheless, if you still want to do this task using .htacess then you should consider this post by Gift of Speed.
If you know how to tweak with theme source codes then you also know that many things in the code which have some errors or bugs are still there which is unnecessary though, why not make your theme looks clean.
Believe me this is also good for making your site’s speed load time faster.
Remove every unnecessary codes, the codes which only getting so much space in your theme.
Making your theme clean can do wonders. 🙂

Making SEO Friendly Content is now an issue for beginners, why? because they have to give an awesome content to their visitors and Google bots too.
No doubt, SEO is complicated and one of the biggest problem for beginners is understanding the whole SEO.
According to Copy Blogger “SEO is the most misunderstood topic in Online Marketing.”
But nothing is impossible, If there’s a will; There’s a way!
That’s the reason I’ve decided to write the whole guide on SEO Friendly Content.
It’s a proven guide on SEO Friendly Content, as this is what I’m doing here.
Let me go to the deep below:
Tweet this article to spread love. 🙂
Content is always prefer as King because without content the blog is nothing. we all know this and read content importance daily on various blogs.
But, we know what makes it king? No we don’t know, the simple answer is Quality of content makes it King.
If you’re writing content without proper knowledge and it has lot of grammatical mistakes then this type of content never called as “King”.
You have to write quality content in order to get better SERP.
Quality content can boost your rankings from zero to hero.
N.B: The very famous Algorithm of Google is Panda, which is especially created to remove every site with Low Quality content and bring High Quality contents in SERP.
A content which is not thin, copied, without grammatical mistakes and full of fruitful information is known as “Quality Content”.
Many of newbies think that doing Proper Keyword Research not impact SERP.
But you know what each and every person who knows SEO is doing Keyword Research before writing the content.
We have to take advantage of Keyword Research to get the loads of Organic Traffic.
If you are not aware of this then you don’t know that how to do Proper Keyword Research?
It’s a whole and big topic, So I prefer you to go MOZ’s guide on Keyword Research which contains each and every step, from beginners to advanced.
First learn Proper Keyword Research before doing anything. It’s a necessary thing for SEO Friendly Content.
Title plays a vital role in SEO Friendly Content. If you have attractive title then visitors more likely to click on your Article.
Here I’m going to give you the popular tips for attractive title:
Copying content never works, If you’re copying contents then believe me you can not call yourself a blogger.
Let me give you a simple example, You wrote an awesome content which contains every useful information and someone copied that on his/her site.
What will be your feelings then? I know you’ll like what the hell? my hard work got copied, same feelings will come to the person from where you copy the content.
Respect others hard work in order to get respected.
If above example not convinced you yet then let me tell you that Google is 100 times smarter than you.
They have Algorithms to check which content is copied.
If you’re doing this stop now and change your habit from copying to writing content.
Forget the past, think about the future!
Long gone a days when we say that 500 words content will work.
You all noticed that things are getting change from time to time. The thing which was of 100$ now it’s for 300$, same in the content.
Now you have to write at least 2000+ words to get better rankings in SERP.
It’s also a way to make visitors into subscribers.
When they see that your content is good and full of information they’re most likely to subscribe to your blog.
If they love that much then they’ll also share it! It’s really a good strategy to engage visitors.
In my previous days, I use to write 1000 words content but I was not getting that much traffic.
I researched on Google this problem and got to know I was doing all things awesome but the only reason was content length.
I was like Ohh! What I’ve did, I’ve just wasted my time! I sold the site and started this site.
From the first day, I promised myself that I’ll write atleast 2000 words content and Alhamdullilah I’m doing this!
You believe or not, it’s working and giving me huge much traffic.
Not getting? Let me give you a solid research by SERPIQ about content length, below I’m attaching the graph of Top 10 Search Results for 20,000+ keywords which is analyzed by SERPIQ in 2012 but it is still worth.
This is the best example that Google give importance to Content Length.
If you can write 500 words then why not 2500 words.
Like me, promise yourself and start writing at least 2000 words, I promise you’ll see changes in SERP!
Are you noticing? I’m adding images where necessary, why? It’s a way to stand out and getting readers attention.
It’s also beneficial for getting better SERP, how? Backlinko analyzed one million Google search results and got to know that “Content with at least one image significantly outperformed content without any images.”
Nowadays many people search Images on Google Image Search, If your image will be there you’ll getting some extra traffic too.
Images are too much beneficial in a reader’s eye as they get attracted by the attractive image, it’s human nature!
Don’t forget the great saying:
You have got that using Images is better but which Image Google loves? The simple answer is Google love images which is unique, SEO friendly and without Copyright.
I want you to check Ankit Singla’s article where he discussed each and every way to make your Images Google optimized.
Start using images where appropriate from now.
N.B: Don’t add too much Images in your content, over limiting of anything can become dangerous!
Adding videos in your article is too much beneficial.
Nowadays, people like videos rather than text.
Our new generation is too lazy in reading and they love to watch videos. Why not give them what they love.
They’ll love to share that content and they’ll become your subscriber for sure.
Making video and adding that in your content is beneficial in other sense too like you’re getting a free backlink from high authority Video sharing site, like Youtube, Dailymotion etc. and high authority websites are most likely to rank faster than yours.
Add your post link in the description section from which you’ll get a free backlink and extra traffic.
It’s also a great way to compete with your competitors if they’re not using Videos in their articles.
It’s like I revealed a secret tip for all of you, take benefit from it!
Check Some Other Articles:
A short and exact keyword match URL is always beneficial for you. Always try to write only main keyword in URL and make it short as much as you can.
Let’s take an example of an Authority blog which is backlinko, I never saw a lengthy URL in their contents/pages, this example is great enough to make you realize that the creepy and lengthy URLs never works.
A short and good URL is not only beneficial for SEO but it’s also beneficial for users to remember URL for coming next time to your site’s content which they read before (when need arises).
Example of a well structured URL is like below:
In this post my title is: “The Proven Guide On SEO Friendly Content Writing!” and my URL is: “http://bornblogger.net/seo-friendly-content/”.
Only put a URL of a keyword you want to rank. This is what I’m using and other Pro Bloggers are using nowadays and getting benefit from it.
Internal linking is ranking factor nowadays.
The simple definition of Internal Linking is linking to your old contents on a new content from the same website. They mostly used in Menu/Navigation on a website/blog.
According to MOZ Internal linking is beneficial in three reasons:
It can be also reduce Bounce rate, how? The readers will more likely to visit the link you’ve gave to your new content. In this way a visitor will spend more time on your blog/website and your bounce rate will reduce.
It has one more advantage, When they click the link of your old article which you gave to your new article then your Page Views will increase.
As MOZ already said Internal Linking help to spread link juice, it also can be beneficial to get your content indexed from your new content which is not already indexed as Google Bots crawl the whole article along with the links.
You can see in this article I’m Linking to my old articles.
Take advantage of Internal Linking, you’ll surely get benefits and better SERP.
Nowadays bloggers thinking only Backlinks are important, Backlinks are important I know but linking to other high authority websites is also very important.
Why? It has two major benefits the first is in terms of SEO and the second is you’ll gain trust in users eye about the information you gave is really fruitful.
N.B: Only link to high authority websites like WikiPedia, Quick Sprout etc. if you link to low authority or spammy websites then Google will surely going to consider your Article as Spam.
You can see infect in this article I’m linking to others many times because I love to link to other high authority sites.
One more thing, don’t link others if their contents are not related to your blog’s content.
This is all what I’m using to rank my contents in Search Engines. I think this guide will make your content a SEO Friendly Content.
I’m really doing all these things to make my content SEO Friendly Content except Making Video Tutorials.
But I’m gonna do that for sure after sometimes as it’s so helpful.
So what’s your thoughts on my SEO Friendly Content?
